      I don’t need a full LibreOffice suite on a single-core Intel Atom netbook, as only Writer and Calc
      (spreadsheet) is used. I would like to save a bit on drive space.

      Therefore:
      1. Is it possible to install just Writer & Calc, rather than the entire LibreOffice package?
      2. Would installing only these two elements, rather than the whole package, save a significant amount of disk space?
      (I suspect the answer to this is it might not make a difference as the same list of dependencies are needed
      whether a full or partial LibreOffice package is used – is this correct)

      Any help with this is much appreciated – many thanks in advance.

        What is your system?
        Is it from antiX-19_x64-base.iso ?

            So, just libreoffice-writer libreoffice-calc
            ^—v
            359 MB
            vs adding the full libreoffice metapackage, which adds a further additional 41MB

            FWIW, after installing, to pare down the disk space footprint, you can
            sudo ncdu /usr/lib/libreoffice/share
            drill-down into the contents of the gallery/ subdirectory
            and, from within ncdu, you can press “d” to delete any unwanted items among the 15MB or so of samples and examples (“d” raises a confirmation prompt, must confirm to proceed with a deletion operation)

            Within the /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/autocorr/ directory, you can selectively pare
            about 1MB worth of acor_*.dat files (files for locales that are alien to users on your system)

            While chasing “bloat”, you might also
            sudo ncdu /usr/share/icons
            and selectively delete subdirectories therein
            or manually nix ’em via rm commands.
            The following are lines excerpted from my personal cleanup script.
            IIRC, removing these frees 35–40MB

            sudo rm -rf /usr/share/icons/hicolor/512x512/*
            sudo rm -rf /usr/share/icons/hicolor/384x384/*
            sudo rm -rf /usr/share/icons/hicolor/128x128/*
            sudo rm -rf /usr/share/icons/papirus-antix/64x64/*
            sudo rm -rf /usr/share/icons/papirus-antix/48x48/*
            sudo rm -rf/usr/share/icons/Adwaita/512x512/*
            sudo rm -rf/usr/share/icons/Adwaita/256x256/*
            sudo rm -rf/usr/share/icons/Adwaita/96x96/*
            sudo rm -rf/usr/share/icons/Adwaita/64x64/*
            sudo rm -rf/usr/share/icons/Adwaita/48x48/*

              A fantastic reply skidoo – thankyou for taking the time over your detailed & informative reply.
              Yes, tried antiX 19 32-bit, but decided to stick with 17.4.1 (base version) for now as it seems to run better.

              So from what you said, it’s 359MB (Calc & Writer) vs ~400MB (complete package), which means
              not a lot of memory saved … many thanks again for this.
